Thursday, 21 July 2016 - London, England

Board, a global provider of Business Intelligence (BI) and Corporate Performance Management (CPM) are pleased to announce that international development charity WaterAid has chosen Board to provide financial budgeting, planning and reporting solutions.

WaterAid required a scalable and flexible financial budgeting and planning solution that could supplement their core finance system, allowing for budgeting across 27 countries; including not only top down strategic planning, but also bottom up planning at an individual project level.  

Through the use of Board’s financial budgeting, planning and reporting solution, WaterAid’s finance and leadership teams in the UK and overseas will now have an accurate and comprehensive solution that will support the growth and vision of its business into the future as it utilises the features of Board to make better business decisions.

With a single integrated approach to Business Analytics and Corporate Performance Management, Board provides critical information quickly and easily, integrating budgeting, planning and forecasting with reporting, analysis and dash-boarding with write-back capability. Board has already enabled over 3,500 companies to improve their business performance by making better decisions.

Paula Laird, Director of Finance and Information Services at WaterAid UK commented:

“WaterAid UK has reached a stage in its development where our global accounting system needs to be complemented by a dedicated financial planning tool.  We were looking for a user-friendly, flexible solution that could accommodate multi-currency, multi-country and multi-level planning and reporting, and we believe that Board is the right choice for us.  We look forward to working with Board to implement this solution.”

Dominic Policella, Director at Board UK commented:

I am delighted that after a thorough selection process WaterAid has chosen Board as their Business Intelligence and Planning solution. We look forward to working with them to implement a solution that transforms the way they manage information across their business.”
